I am trying to learn Insight meditation. I have seen many resources through out the net ( such as this one http://www.vipassanadhura.com/howto.htm
) and I am aware that it isn't a substitute for a real teacher but i don't have one for the moment.
i have practice mindfullness of breathing since last year.
I usually start by paying attention to different part of my body, going head to toe then to the breath then i pay attention to my posture by mentioning "sitting" then let it go took a snapshot then "sitting" . I then start to note the " in " and "out" at the nostril s it is where i feel the most the breath. I have noticed that there is a usually a gap between the "in" and "out" so I note sitting as i took a snapshot of my posture not visually but with my mind.
When i find that my concentration is a bit more settles i am trying to pay attention to everything else by noting them such as "imagining", "thinking" etc ..... .
so i wonder if i am doing it the right way ? as my mind sometimes is filled with doubt and I am aware that is a big hindrance in meditation.
also am i right to think that vipassana combine samatha and insight together ?
thank you . with metta.
